One other note of caution about Gimp: I would not try to install it if 
you're running Win XP.  The online info indicates that it will run on 
Win XP, but it also may screw up other programs.  I downloaded it and 
then discovered that you had to install the GTK+ Runtime Environment.  
Did that, tried it and, after quickly determining that it was an awkward 
program and not one that I would choose to use for anything, discovered 
that GTK had messed up other programs.  Took me a couple of hours to get 
everything back to normal (had to manually find the bits and pieces of 
GTK and reinstall a couple of other programs).

Maybe it works OK with Linux, for which it was designed, but I would not 
recommend installing it on Win XP.
